    I have been working at ABB full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company cares about its employees. The company offers a wide array of benefits, including vacation accruals from day one. The sense of community working at an ABB plant is phenomenal.

    Cons

    The salary is not outstanding, but still fairly good for an entry level position. Raises are done on a yearly basis for the whole company, which if you get hired at the wrong time of year can be really detrimental. However, even as one of these cases, this company still shines.

    I have been working at ABB full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    ABB seems to focus on safety and integrity to ensure safety of all employees. ABB is a global conglomerate with many opportunities for movement.

    Cons

    Global conglomerate also means slow. The speed at which the organization recognizes the need for change and then does it is quite slow.

    Advice to Management

    A path forward in regards to how ABB will utilize software seems to be lacking. We are falling further behind all other major competitors in regards to SaaS and software and hardware integration.
